Construction Progress Report, 18 October 2015

Yes, we’re overdue to re-open!

Our move-in dates have been postponed until November, but with good reason—to accommodate a special project in the new space.

Volunteer Raimond Flynn of New Paltz, NY, gathered together a small group of donors who wanted to artistically enliven the space, and they are funding the project in entirety. More information and photos will follow in our next blog entry.

Note to local members: please do not come to get a preview of the space this week, as it is disruptive to those working on the project. Thank you.

Facility fundraiser update: 91 members and friends have donated $11,625 toward rent and utility costs for the next two years. Thank you to all our donors who have helped to make our re-opening possible.

Our new Friends of the Rudolf Steiner Library in the Berkshire-Taconic region held their second meeting on October 15. Members will be helping to coordinate our open-house celebration scheduled for Saturday afternoon, November 28, 1-4 pm. This a drop-in event, so please come by if you’re in the area.

On the morning of Nov. 28, 10-12 noon, we will also hold a review conversation of library committee work over the past two years, based on our survey conducted this past summer.

Once we are moved into the space, there will be plenty of unpacking and re-shelving of materials to do. If you have time to volunteer, please contact Judith Kiely at rsteinerlibrary@gmail.com.
